MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Governor Robert Bentley is in the center of some national criticism for allowing Jefferson County to file the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history.
Businessweek slams the governor for his inability to help the state and its creditors reach a deal in the cases. It also claims that he is inexperienced and lacks power in the legislature.
Political experts say it's too soon to start criticizing the governor. Dr. Waymon Burke, political expert for our sister station WAFF in Huntsville says, "He's having to deal with the aftermath of the financial issue here. He, being the leader of our state, is one that has to deal with the consequences of that even though he didn't create them."
